Coastal Partnership East as a whole does not have any direct responsibilities to respond to a major flooding event however, we do have a part to play in helping our coast and the communities we serve be as resilient as possible. Our role is also to inspect the coast after a major event and to assess what repairs might be necessary, for example the recent works at Lowestoft South Beach after the 2013 tidal surge and more recently at Mundesley after the tidal surge in January 2017.

BERT was designed and developed in a partnership between Suffolk Coastal and Waveney District Councils, the Environment Agency and Groundwork with the support of New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership and Suffolk Chamber of Commerce. Coastal Partnership East manages the development and implementation of BERT.
